NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – This morning is cool in northern and western New Mexico, with upper 40s around the high terrain. It’s milder and quiet for the low elevations.

Southern NM will stay drier, but cloudy. Isolated storms will pop up in the northern and wester mountains, moving southwest off of the high terrain, into the middle and upper Rio Grande Valley, the east mountains and central highlands, and the west mesa and high terrain.
